High Risk Patients, High Risk Care, Low Care Outcome
There are loads of risks associated with bariatric surgery.
Loads of them.
My uncle had a lap band and
Had to have it removed because he
Couldn’t stop vomiting, even without
Eating anything. All he did want to eat
Was little cookies and m and m’s—
It punished the glutton— but it didn’t
Fix the cause, at least for him.
He later had his stomach stapled
And it caused him to have chronic gastritis
And vomit all day long
He couldn’t have this one reversed, however
So he is mostly immobile
Wears his cpap round the clock, during the daytime
To help him breathe while he sits
Unable to eat, also totally unable to lose weight
I believe he has misdiagnosed lipedema
Anyway, people who don’t know any fat people —
People who only know that one friend—
They think does that one thing
And if they could only stop it
They’d be thin and pretty—
You have no idea.
You have no idea what you’re talking about
You don’t know anyone like my uncle
You don’t know his experiences
And you don’t know what he should or shouldn’t be doing
All the people who were convinced they did
Just fucked things up more than they were before
Maybe fat people need to change, or maybe
The medical system needs to first.
